Blacknight CNAME records

Introduction

To update your CNAME records with this Domain Name System (DNS) provider, first understand CNAME records and learn how to create them for G Suite in general.

Steps

To configure CNAME records for this domain provider:

  1. Sign in to your account at: cp.blacknight.com
  2. Click Registered Domains.    
  3. Select Manage DNS for the domain you are trying to verify.
  4. Click the DNS tab.
  5. Click the DNS Records tab.
  6. Select Add New DNS Record.
  7. In the pulldown menu for DNS Record Type, select CNAME.
  8. Enter your CNAME in the field marked Domain. See CNAME record values for help.
  9. Enter the address you wish the CNAME to point to in the field marked Canonical Name.
  10. Click Finish.
Be aware it may take as long as 72 hours before DNS changes are propagated, depending on the time to live (TTL) that was configured for your records. Until records have been updated worldwide, you will still receive traffic to your old server.

Troubleshooting

Follow the steps within Troubleshoot CNAME records to fix your DNS setup.
